City of Toledo to contribute to I-475/U.S. 23 interchange work in Ohio

June 20, 2018

The funding will come from Toledo's capital improvement fund

The city of Toledo, Ohio, announced Tuesday it would contribute up to $1 million toward the I-475/U.S. 23 interchange at Dorr Street.

City officials said this project serves as a corridor to new commerce and transportation. The money will come from Toledo's capital improvement fund. Workers would implement a multilane roundabout interchange. Dorr Street will grow from two lanes to four, with a two-way left-turn lane in the center between North Holland Sylvania and North McCord roads.

The estimated cost is $26 million. The local share is about half that sum and the Ohio Department of Transportation covers the remainder. Officials expect to issue contracts in August 2019. They hope to finish work in the summer of 2021.

Dorr Street west of I-475 will have an 8-ft-wide paved shoulder and barrier curb. The eastern side will have a curb and gutter against the lanes. A sidewalk and tree lawn will sit on both sides of the road. Proposed work also includes noise wall construction. Lucas County commissioners on Tuesday approved a resolution establishing a joint cooperation agreement with the city.
